Dear ocean lovers, as we near the end of the Raja Ampat high season we can reflect on what has been another magnificent few months here in the heart of the coral triangle! However the season hasn't finished yet!!! The Sun is shining bright now on raja ampat and we are still having as much fun above as below water.
The beautiful & luxurious KM Blue Manta is the perfect vessel from which to explore the wonders of Raja Ampat, our world class crew are ready & waiting to show you the best of this area both above and below the waves.

Blue Manta trip BLAMRA1 6 -17th November; from Ambon through the Banda Sea and Ring of fire and on to the world famous Raja Ampat. This would be our last "crossing trip" of the season before we base ourselves in Sorong for the Raja Ampat high season. As with all this seasons Banda Sea crossings; we were not to be dissapointed!
Bluemanta is cruising all year round in the beautiful seas of the indonesian archipelago, but no other route gives a sense of adventure and discovery as much as our CROSSING trips in the vast and deep BANDA SEA.
This was the last trip in 2016 for KM Blue Manta in Komodo. We welcomed a group of young divers from Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and Western Australia. This group was assembled by Ravin (pictured 3rd from left) - whom had joined a couple of our trips in Raja Ampat previously.
Bluemanta is back in Komodo and it is so goooooooood! Guests and dive crew alike are enjoying plenty of Mantas from North to South, Frogfishes, Sharks, clear water, and of course the famous Komodo Dragons on the beach. This trip we could hear our guests saying waowwwwww during everydive thanks to their fullface masks
From the very first day, welcoming our guests onboard the beautiful KM Blue Manta, it was clear that anticipation levels were high amongst dive staff and guests alike! Everyone was excitied to be embarking upon a true diving trip of a life time. Diving and wish list sightings dominated every conversation as all thoughts of the real world receeded and thoughts turned only to what mysteries the blue would reveal on this special crossing trip from Sorong to Saumlaki exploring the remote and exotic 'Forgotten Islands.'
The Blue Manta is now operating in Indonesia, currently in Raja Ampat, the vessel has been delighting our guests with incredible levels of service, wonderful food and of course great diving. They say a picture paints a thousand words - so this video should paint a million! Thanks to Nu our onboard Videographer for this stunning video filmed onboard this January.
As repeat customers who have been on the old White Manta, New White Manta and Black Manta, Blue Manta is definitely in a class of its own.
